19 min

More and more companies are participating in Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) reporting. Widely popular in other parts of the globe, these standards are becoming increasingly more common in the U.S. because they provide real results at the properties that implement them.

Join Dan Winters, GRESB Head of Americas, for a discussion that includes:

  • More information about GRESB and why companies are involved
  • How GRESB reporting works
  • Anticipated changes in GRESB reporting for next year
